Check out this article, coming out in Sunday’s NYTimes. And while you’re contemplating that question, let’s revisit the beautiful piece by Lynn Tomlinson about Holland Island, which is now long lost, sunk into the #chesbay.

It has been an honor and a privilege to be part of the team bringing the Ruth Starr Rose exhibition to Easton, where the artworks of a strong, progressive woman 86 years ago are as alive and meaningful to our community today as ever.
On Thursday, Florence Sherwood of Talbot County marched up the steps of the Armory into the exhibit looking for a photograph. Of course we knew exactly what photograph she was talking about. Listen to her story here, of the day 59 years ago that some 30 people from the tiny African American Talbot County villages of Copperville and Longwoods were invited for a tour of the White House by President and Mamie Eisenhower.
Florence was 15 at the time of her visit, the same age that Ruth Starr Rose was when she arrived on the Eastern Shore of Maryland from Wisconsin at the turn of the last century. Rose was as wide-eyed at the culture and world she found here as Florence and her group must have been at the White House in 1957.

What is it?
And now that our friendly neighbor Janet Hammed has successfully identified the photo above as a bag of 12 hot crabs sold for $30 by our friends at Chesapeake Landing/Bay Hundred Seafood, I’m happy to report that the first half dozen of the year were as delicious as I expected. Bring it on, 2016!
